Having spent nearly 14 years working within the Health and Social Care sector, then taking out to care for her two daughters full-time, Chez found it challenging to find employment during school hours that would be flexible during school holidays.

Following a meeting with her Work Coach, Chez was informed about the Level 3 Diploma in Nail Technology, highlighting essential information such as the flexibility of the course and self-employment career opportunities upon completion.

Chez recalls, “the fact that it’s only one day a week meant I would be able to attend without having to make arrangements for my children, she also discussed with me the opportunity for self-employment after completion, and I decided to take the plunge”.

“At the age of 37, it was not easy to change my career path entirely, but I am so glad I did. Everyone at Pathway Skillzone Walsall has been so welcoming and supportive, the facilities are fully equipped, and the staff are highly skilled in their field, meaning I am receiving the best training possible.”

“I hope to start my mobile Nail Service when fully qualified, where I can set my working hours that will suit my family.”

Chez has also taken the opportunity to develop further skills by undertaking the Level 3 Diploma in Beauty Therapy at Pathway SkillsZone, which I will be starting soon.

“I cannot thank the team enough for its ongoing support.”
